Description

Convention of States: Definitively Smart, or Dangerously Unwise?

The debate is moderated by Brad Jacobs, a well-respected Regent University law professor.

Our United States Constitution was crafted to accomplish two things: 1) to limit the powers of our federal government, respecting the sovereignty of states and individual citizens, and 2) to define the structure of the three branches of our federal government. Since then we have amended our Constitution many times; we currently have 27 remaining amendments.

Many citizens believe that the limitations defined by our Constitution have been ignored or confused due to legal precedence set by various court rulings, or due to a failure of constitutionally constrains enforced upon executive power and legislative actions.

This has prompted many concerned citizens to wonder if we need to call for an Article 5 Convention of States to return our country to its founders’ original vision of a limited federal government.

What are the risks to our constitutionally protected rights? Free speech, the right to protest and assemble, the right to bear arms — all have all been attacked in the press, by special interests and by our elected representatives. Do you need to learn more about the COS process and implications?
